I have a healthy respect for farmers. But I am sure the farmer would be overjoyed to get $8.49 a pound for his pecans. Once the truckers, processors, packers, distributors, advertisers and supermarkets get their cut I just wonder how much the farmer really gets.
Just like the farmer of any grain, how much of that $3.00 box of cereal does he get?
That doesn't even take into account the farmer that raised that beef that will be sitting on my Christmas table at $6.00 a pound.
